Hi, I am Ms. Amanda, the new teacher at North Glenora Playschool. I have been fortunate to be part of this incredible program for the last 3 years as an educational assistant with Community Options and have very much enjoyed being part of the team and learning from Ms. Maria. I have a diploma in Early Childhood Development and over 16 years experience working with children and I am looking forward to stepping into the role of playschool teacher this year.
I believe that play is the work of young children, not just a break from more important tasks. Plentiful opportunities for movement, to be creative, to build and become are vital to children's development. Children need to experience as much as they can first hand and be supported by adults to make new discoveries and develop a passion for life long exploration and learning. I am excited to continue to be part of this program and grow with you all!
